I received a wonderful package from the wonderful onegroovyday today! Remember how she was teasing us with hints about sewing a bazillion little things into one big thing? Well here it is: a fabulous TM-style bag!
Here's the front. The orange patch at the top is embroidered with "follow your heart".
Here's the back. I adore the colors and all the different patches, which incorporate many of my favorite things: cats, coffee, hearts, chickens, sewing, and birds!
Here's the inside--love that lining fabric! And you can see the chicken patch on the side.
Here's the other side panel; she embroidered our username initials on the upper patch! I love that!
Look what else she made me: an armchair pincushion! I requested this, and I'm excited to have it now (I really could have used it while sewing your quilt, ogd!). The front has two pockets made from fabric selvedges!
This is how it will look draped over the arm of my chair (while is too messy right now to take an actual action shot!)
The back has beautiful patchwork:
AND I got my very first hoopla! Hooray! I can start a hoopla wall now! She used the quote from my profile. The hearts are all different beautiful fabrics; the stitching is beautiful too.
AND she sent a big stack of paperless towels (to use instead of paper towels in the kitchen). I love the bird print on the flannel. These were on my pinterest, and I'm so excited to have them in my kitchen!
Last but not least is this beautiful tiny heart filled with french knots. OGD says she was in a french knot mood that day--I guess so! I will display it with my felt badge collection (it does have felt on the back!)
Thank you so much for everything, Mindy--it feels like Christmas and my birthday combined! You are a wonderful, generous, and talented partner, and I loved swapping with you!!
